Back at Home Farm, having been warned by Dawn to keep his mouth shut about the affair, Terry tries his best to keep up the pretence that everything is normal. Chris is in a good mood as, despite his lack of performance in the bedroom the previous night, he feels his marriage is back on track. When Chris tells Terry that he's decided that Charity deserves to know about the illness, Terry can’t hold back, telling a devastated Chris that he was right all along about the affair with Cain. The bad news arrives just as they hear Cain's screeching tires on the driveway. Leaving the office to find out what's happening Chris and Terry look on as Cain kisses Charity having forced her into an embrace after a fiery argument. Elsewhere, Robert drops the bombshell to Jack that he's decided to leave school to be a mechanic.
